Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #156

Happy Wednesday!  Hope you're having a great week!  We've been having great weather here and I do wish it would last longer!  Today is my Halloween wreath making class that I'm super excited about.  I think the girls are going to love these wreaths!  I mean, who doesn't love a super cute bead spider?

We have a great new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Narelle Farrugia.  She has created a great sketch for us!  Narelle is the queen of beautiful cards, amazing layers and fabulous flowers!
I must admit (shamefully) that this sketch sent me for a loop and it wasn't the circle that gave me grief.  It was just the whole thing.  This card is version #4.  It also doesn't look quite as nice in the picture as it does in person.  We had a cloudy day on Tuesday so my lighting wasn't the greatest.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Island Indigo, Silver Glimmer
DSP: Winter Frost Specialty
Stamps: Flower Patch, And Many More, Kinda Eclectic
Ink: Basic Black, Silver, Island Indigo, Pool Party
Other: Sequins, Flower Fair Framelits, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created!  You will not be disappointed!  I'm so fortunate to be part of this great team!

I hope you have a amazing day!
